Working with B&M to see if they will do another run for us. They need to know the number to do a run. The order has to be 100. If you want one let me know.

Price? $150 shipped within the 48 states. Outside the US you need to speak with me and I will check shipping.

We need a head count before anything serious can happen. Speak up now or forever hold your peace or piece I guess. :D

Ryan A Harris
03-24-2012, 12:51 PM
Really, a MUST HAVE item? Now don't get me wrong, I think they are great, but calling them a MUST HAVE seems over the top.

If you want this for racing, then I get it. But if you have a street car & a sloppy shift, just do the rebuild for it. You can get parts from Ford, it makes a world of difference.

Like I said, I do want one for one of my SC's. I just have other things ahead of it right now.

So, have you had anyone commit to your list?

Nope. From my understanding 2 is what were left available. Again, this is a feeler to see if we can get an order of 20. Price is not set yet, but it will be less than 229.99 or I wont be making the order. I am not a retailer having a mark up.

All I can say for sure is I have been involved in a couple group purchases with Todd.

He isolates a need, secures a supplier and offers it out as a service to the club members.

I'm a big fan of the B&M Shifter and although it may not be a "must have" in some minds, when amortized out it probably works out to less than a penny a push and pull... and you will notice the difference regardless of your driving style.

All,

I can get an order done, but it will take 100 to be run. The price would be about $150 per shifter shipped to you.

We need a lot more names than the 4 we currently have. If you want this done speak up.

The first post will be updated.

I can't make the order with only 4 requests. That would be over 10 grand of my personal money in the order and I did that once for Shocks for the group and won't be doing it again.

We get 75 orders we can make this happen. I can purchase 25 of them.

I would say a must have. Especially being higher mile shifters for the most part have parts that arent replaceable with the parts you cna get to rebuild the units. Ive even pulled shifters out of under 100,000 mile cars that werent rebuildable. That to me is a must have. If you have the opportunity to buy one I say go for it.

Bill still has them listed on his site SuperCoupe Performance for $229.99. Did you check with him to see availability?

It is exciting to see such interest in a part that is considered obsolete by the manufacturer.

I do have a small quantity of these in stock right now but I do have 100 more coming in to my shop within the next week or so.

I spoke with my contact at B&M and he reassured me that Super Coupe Performance is their EXCLUSIVE supplier for this shifter for the Tbird SC and Cougar XR7. He said if anyone else called in with interest in this part they would simply refer them to SCP.

Since there is great interest in these Ripper shifter and SCP has these currently IN STOCK and has MANY more coming within a short period of time I'm willing to offer these without any type of group buy to members of this forum for $179.99 + shp.

I wish I could go as low as was advertised here but I simply cannot and make a reasonable profit to stay in business.

Anyone interested can call me personally to purchase at this price or you can buy online at the SCP website and simply put you saw this special price at the SCCoA in the "Comments" section during checkout and I will change the price prior to your credit card being ran.

Typical shipping within the 48 lower states will be approx. $12-15. Canadians will be approx. $30-40.

BirdofPrey97
11-27-2012, 04:20 PM
Bill I have called them and that price is what I can get them for. 12,500 is what it costs to get them and then shipping to have them sent to me and then i would ship them out.

If you want to run a special please post your own ad. I have never not delivered on a GB that I have setup.

How about PMing me and asking me the above stated doubt/question before posting in a thread? Real class being shown. Let a guy do a deal for SCCOA and then step in once "enough" interest is shown and run a "special." Grade A in my book.

Anyone can call Flowmaster and have them quote you a price on the minimum it takes for them to run an order, which is a set of 100.

Bill Evanoff
11-27-2012, 04:26 PM

Couple things with this.

1. This was almost 3 years ago now.
2. A site vendor went to the manufacture after I posted this and made some "arrangements" that causes the group to have this product purchased from that vendor only. That being said this order can still be done, but the demand isn't there nor do I have time during harvest season to arrange these things. With the messages sent to me and the shady behind the back deals that have been made I walked away at this point.
3. Going to have to pay the vendor his asking price. What this did do was get the price lowered on the units for a short time from one of the vendors on this site.
4. I am just a regular joe that talks to the manufactures on a regular basis and when a demand for a part is enough for production I do my best to make this happen for the benefits of the SCCOA members not my pocket book.

Think the last count we were still about 25 orders short and that was before collecting $, which tends to widen the gap from past experience.

At this time I would say this is NOT going to happen.

Go ahead and buy from Bill and Victor. They are our saving grace. The thunderbird world would end without them............ When a vendor marks up a product over 80% and works out of their home so there isn't a shop over head........ It's not worth getting into it about.

Your best bet at this point would be to keep an eye out here in the classifieds section or get one off eBay if you ever see one!. My names on the list but nothing ever came of the offer sadly & I got mine (also saldy its sitting in the box waiting to install but will be soon!) from Bill at supercoupeperformance.com, he shows them as sold out but mentions on the site a list for a possible group buy. https://www.supercoupeperformance.com/m5r2-ripper-short-throw-shifter-obsolete-but-we-have-them-166 Good luck!
